The first of two episodes with Pepperspray/Indymedia producer Patricia Boiko covering this years Sundance/Slamdance film festivals.
LIES and broadcasting the truth. Our first three films center on the lies we tell ourselves and each other. We end with the tools to broadcast the truth.
Patricia Boiko caught up with filmmaker, Sam Kauffman, at the Slamdance Film Festival. His beautifully crafted and poignant film, Massacre at Murambi, is striking for it's simplicity in conveying the message of Rwanda and Dafur. His 5 minute film is shown in it's entirity.
The second film is from our newest and youngest award winning director and "IndyMedia Presents" producer in Denmark. Mia Graabak's film was a winner in a videomarathon.
Then we move to Park City, Utah and the Sundance Film Festival where Marina and Ryan, Seattle high school students, tell us about stereotypical lies spun about people from the Middle East and how the hilarious new Morgan Spurlock film, "Where In The World is Osama Bin Laden" gave them a whole new perspective.
The final piece comes by way of the filmmakers lodge at Sundance and http://www.witness.org and tells how to broadcast the truth.

BE THE MEDIA! Pepperspray Productions formed shortly after the WTO protests in Seattle, in response to the Independent Media Center's call, "don't hate the media, be the media!". We believe that the Corporate Media is not telling us the whole story, and that the people must make our own media if we want our voices to be heard.
